The Facts: Watkins is expected to play against the Colts today, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Diehards Line: The Chiefs had listed Watkins as questionable with the foot injury that derailed the second half of his first season with the team. As PFT noted, the question, if he plays, becomes whether he’ll be 100 percent, whether he’ll be less than 100 percent but fully engaged in the game plan, or whether he’ll simply be a decoy. For the year, Watkins has 40 catches for 519 yards and three touchdowns. His best games came in Week 8 versus Denver (eight catches, 107 yards, two touchdowns) and Week 2 at Pittsburgh (six catches, 100 yards and a 31-yard rushing attempt). In addition to Watkins, Sammy Ware (hamstring) is also questionable. We'll have the official game status for both in the 90 minutes leading up to kickoff.
